Bluestacks, the team behind the Android app player for Windows, has released the company’s first “Mr.Android” study. Ever wonder what the average Android user may look like? Pretty normal, apparently. Using data collected from Nielsen Media Research along with a survey of Bluestacks’s 145,000 Facebook fans, the company created a composite of what the average Android user looks like and even what kind of clothes typical Android users might wear. Additionally, the chart includes country of origin, phone habits and much more. Interestingly enough, 18% of users have unusually large heads according to the study, while 62% wear jeans and 63% have a significant other. The data was collected between December 12th to December 19th, and it is in no way scientific. The company’s full press release follows after the break.
BlueStacks Announces “Mr.Android” 2011
Android-Apps-on-PC software company compiles statistics on prototypical Android user
Campbell, CA (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
Android on Windows company BlueStacks has announced its first annual “Mr.Android.” The company built a proxy for the average Android user employing data from Nielsen, along with a poll of its 145,000 Facebook fans.The data revealed some interesting statistics, such as the fact that a full third of Android users have never downloaded a paid app, and more eccentric nuggets such as the fact that 18% reported having unusually large heads. 37% of Android users reported wearing glasses.
To turn the data into photos, the company turned to Brazilian designer Pablo de la Rocha. “I loved the idea of an amalgam of the different aspects of the Android user,” said de la Rocha. “It’s one of those things where you don’t know how it’s going to look until you try. It came out pretty weird, which is why we love it.”
BlueStacks says it plans to release a “Ms.Android” in 2012. The Mr.Android graphic can be found at http://bluestacks.com/mr-android-2011/. The company has made embed code available at the bottom of the page.
BlueStacks recently announced its Android Apps on PC software passed 550,000 downloads since the release of its alpha version in October. A beta release is expected in the new year. The free download is available at http://BlueStacks.com.
